Welcome to SODEC Nepal

Development Communication Society, Nepal (SODEC – Nepal) is a non-governmental organization registered at District Administration Office in Kathmandu and is affiliated with Social Welfare Council since 2010.

The organization was founded by a group of mass communication professionals with the goal to exercise the influence of communications media for better access to information, education and knowledge and act as a stimulant for development. The premise for SODEC-Nepal’s involvement in development communication is based on the concept of multiplicity; democratization and participation at all levels by stressing the cultural and political identities of the local communities.

With strong assertion that “one is no longer attempting to create a need for the information one is disseminating, but one is rather disseminating information for which there is a need”, SODEC-Nepal produces and disseminates media that promotes good governance and accountability through the encouragement of citizen voices in media to promote the people's participation in development process that contributes to blend the authority and citizens in the governance system. In order to foster the process of empowering in grass roots level, SODEC-Nepal collaborates and works closely with media organizations, civil society organizations (CSOs), universities, UN agencies, embassies, and the Government of Nepal.

SODEC-Nepal mainly produces and broadcasts media contents for Radio and Television and is attempting to venture into cross-media platform to engage diverse development partners.


SODEC-Nepal has been covering the issues of governance and accountability since its inception through collaborations as partners as well as media support with various organizations.

Interaction programme on local level restructuring and media organized

Local level and local bodies are the key to addressing balanced and equal distribution of rights and authority to all diverse groups of people as acknowledged by the Constitution of Nepal. The strengthening of local level is parallel to ensuring basic democratic rights of the citizens of the federal democratic nation and to respect and preserve Nepal's ethnic and cultural diversity.
